As David L. Ulin notes in "Honk if You Love Pico-Union" (Nov. 15), L.A. audiences don't turn out in droves to support home-grown or nontraditional arts. The few existing mid-sized theaters don't seem to be thriving, and the demise of Alfaro's alma mater, the Inner City Cultural Center, which emerged from the ashes of the Watts riots, has left a large void. However, as long as Alfaro and other gap-straddling, fun-poking, hmm-inducing performers and writers can work at art-irritating-life, there may be hope for this city yet. Kezia M. Jauron Sherman Oaks To those who know him, Alfaro is a gifted talent, one who perseveres and relates Latino complexities to an oft-times skeptical public.

So much of your attention is focused on the immediate -- what's coming out this week, this moment -- that the long view disappears.

David L. Ulin wrote that Joe Torre "isn't a legend but a person . . ." ("A Legend on the Line," April 6). Let's see. The Yankees had not won a World Series in 18 years and yet won in Torre's first year at the Yankees helm. He followed with 11 playoff appearances, nine division titles, five American League pennants and three World Series titles. And Ulin writes, "Torre must guide the Dodgers to their first pennant in 20 years to secure his place in baseball history." Still, Ulin adds that Torre's record with the Yankees "is matched only by those of Casey Stengel and Joe McCarthy, two of the most iconic figures ever to manage a baseball team."
